Can viruses be removed from the BIOs?

(This is just a general question. I'm not having a problem with this topic, just curious.) I believe that it is correct that viruses can infect the BIOs, maybe I'm wrong. Is there special software to remove viruses from the BIOs? At one time I believe the BIOs chip could be replaced to solve this problem but now because of engineering changes this can't be done with modern mother boards. Is this correct? Are these types of viruses common? What percent (a guesstimate will do) of risk do I have of acquiring one of these monsters, provided I use anti-virus software?
